"Sachs and Violens" is an American four issue comic book mini-series written by Peter David, with art by George Pérez, published by Marvel's Epic Comics imprint from 1993 to 1994.

Part of the short-lived Heavy Hitters line, the book featured a greater amount of violence and adult situations compared with mainstream comic books of the time (the title itself is an obvious play on the words "sex and violence"), and as such it was recommended for mature readers.

Plot summary

Juanita "J.J." Sachs is a model who does softcore photo shoots for her friend Ernie "Violens" Schultz, a former Vietnam War photojournalist. After her friend is viciously murdered in a snuff photo shoot, the two of them track down the people responsible, and in the process uncover an underworld of depravity, ending in a violent showdown in Mardi Gras.

Sachs and Violens currently appear as supporting characters in Peter David's creator-owned title, "Fallen Angel".

Collected editions

The series has been collected into a trade paperback by DC Comics:
